DCU Polaris

DCU Polaris is more than just a new building. It’s a guiding light for the future of education and a catalyst that will kick-start DCU’s ambitious next chapter. Polaris will be a new home for STEM at DCU, accelerating advances in how we educate, research, innovate and connect.

DCU Polaris is rapidly taking shape on campus, and is set to open to students and researchers in 2024. With 30,000 visitors a year, DCU Polaris will be a hub of innovation and collaboration where DCU researchers, students, industry partners and community members can work together in new ways to solve society’s greatest challenges. In addition, Polaris will be Ireland’s most advanced teaching and learning facility for STEM subjects.

DCU Polaris will help us build on our research strengths in a wide range of areas, from deepening our work in children’s health and physical literacy to expanding our exploration of AI for better living and continuing to lead innovation and advance knowledge in elite sports performance and the Internet of Things.

Each year, DCU Polaris will power:

STEM students advancing knowledge
students accessing innovative, collaborative facilities
hours of mixed reality learning
hours of prototyping solutions to the world's most pressing challenges
